Revenge is a dish best served cold.

In Ann Aguirre's Mortal Danger, Edie Kramer has a score to settle with the beautiful people at Blackbriar Academy. Their cruelty drove her to the brink of despair, and four months ago, she couldn’t imagine being strong enough to face her senior year. But thanks to a Faustian compact with the enigmatic Kian, she has the power to make the bullies pay. She’s not supposed to think about Kian once the deal is done, but devastating pain burns behind his unearthly beauty, and he’s impossible to forget. 

In one short summer, her entire life changes and she sweeps through Blackbriar, prepped to take the beautiful people down from the inside. A whisper here, a look there, and suddenly . . . bad things are happening. It’s a head rush, seeing her tormentors get what they deserve, but things that seem too good to be true usually are, and soon, the pranks and payback turns from delicious to deadly. Edie is alone in a world teeming with secrets and fiends lurking in the shadows. In this murky morass of devil’s bargains, she isn’t sure who—or what—she can trust. Not even her own mind.

This is a totally new story that kept me in my seat. It’s very different yet it is mind blowing.

Plot: The plot alone is amazing. It carries very different from what I read before and I’m already anxious for the next book. I don’t want to reveal too much about the plot but know that as the story goes on, the plot thickens. It’s gets better and better with each chapter and the ending….WOW!

Characters: Both characters in this book are playing a bigger part in their life. They think things can be better but not without a sacrifice. One thing I particular enjoyed about the characters was their bluntness of who they are. They know about each other pasts and see the hurt they have both endured. Yet, they grow, change and learn to love.

Ending: The ending of the book is amazing. Once the big reveal of the story is out of the bag, its on baby! The plot moves faster and more action unfolds. I’m super excited to know more of this “game.” I want to know what the bigger picture is. Edie and Kian will go through much I’m sure of it. This story is similar to The Cabin In The Woods. All characters are playing are part in something big and unknown. Literally, I’m dying to know the unknown. I can’t wait!!

If you are up for a adventure that gives the reader thrills, read this book. Smart and exciting, Mortal Danger is genuine and addicting. A vivaciously, well written amazing read, Mortal Danger is awesome.

I give it 5 BITES!


Happy Reading!

    YAY! I really loved this one too Savy! It was completely different just like you said, and I loved that it didn’t end up being the high school revenge story I was expecting going in. It was so much more:)

  3. I just loved the second half of this book! I so can’t wait for that next book too! We need it now. 😀

    I think you might’ve liked this one a little more than I did, Savy, but it was a really fast and entertaining read. I’m curious about where the story goes next, too!
